Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

A comparison of the same garden over the last eight months: the top photographs show the Cowbridge Physic Garden the first time Eoin and I visited. As you can see, everything is bare and stark, with hardly any sign of the abundant growth to come.
These photos were taken a few days ago, showing how much the landscape has changed over the last seven or eight months. Now, the flowers are in full bloom, the wild strawberries are fruiting, and the espaliered apple trees are heavy with fruit. The growth is so thick that you can’t even see the fountain in the centre of the garden until you are almost on top of it.

It’s fascinating to see how the garden has changed between winter and summer, and I’m looking forward to seeing what ripens in the autumn, and what new growth comes next spring.
